Casablanca Moroccan Style White Party By AMS Exclusive Luxury Events

 Here’s looking at you kid…I had a great time at the Casablanca Moroccan Style Launch Party of AMS Exclusive Luxury Events hosted by Alin Queen and Mark Sevier at a private estate. Sponsors for the event were Restoration 911, Kookoo Liqueur, and Patron Tequila. Alin Queen is also a noted chef and she prepared a very tasty and authentic Moroccan style dinner with 15 appetizers, 4 main courses, bread made from scratch, and amazing desserts! The hummus was the best I’ve ever had hands down…well maybe it’s a tie between Chef Alin and my mom. And Mark was a great host as well. 


There were also belly dancers, hookahs and live entertainment. All in all, it was a great event with amazing hosts and a wide variety of entertainment options and hookah of course!

MyLücke App Brings Much Luck to Angelenos

MyLücke is a great company for those on the go especially in a big metropolis like Los Angeles, where the company is headquartered.
This innovative company is an on-demand, private parking marketplace that makes hourly, daily, weekly and monthly parking easier for drivers, while serving as an additional source of income for people with under-utilized parking spaces. Also described as a virtual Airbnb for parking , the app-based solution is an intelligent player in the ‘share economy.’ My Lücke’s goal is to help provide more available parking spaces for both consumers and commuters (employees) who encounter continuous issues in finding a place for their car.  By providing more parking, MyLücke in turn alleviates traffic congestion in busy areas like Los Angeles, California where MyLücke is headquartered. The MyLücke app can be downloaded for free in the App Store.
MyLücke founder Emily Webb
MyLücke founder Emily Webb
After founder & CEO, Emily Webb, moved to Los Angeles, she noticed how even a short 30-minute drive can become a full hour task if a driver is forced to add extra time to seek parking once they arrive at their destination. Emily was paying outrageous amounts of money for public parking, oftentimes $30- $40 a day – not to mention the cost of tickets for expired metered parking and street cleaning. Plus the extra time looking for parking ruined the driving experience and caused her unnecessary delays and stress. For most people, the lack of reliable, cost-effective parking can become a daily inconvenience and ultimately, effect the lifestyle and happiness of people’s every day experiences.
MyLücke app
MyLücke app
MyLücke is solving the universal problem of parking in both urban and rural areas. Research shows that cars are predicted to double worldwide by 2020, and valuable land can not continue to be consumed by public lots and garages. As society continues to take a stronger approach towards a share economy, it is MyLücke’s goal to exploit vacant and available parking space while allowing everyday people to generate additional income from their parking.
 
There are more than half a million commuters every day that drive into Los Angeles looking for hourly, daily, weekly and even monthly parking. Additionally, there aren’t very many ways in our economy to make money from literally doing nothing. That being said, there are two target groups who benefit most from MyLücke:
  1. First, anyone looking for parking in Los Angeles in areas where spots are scarce, expensive, and hard to find.
  2. Second, business owners and residents in Los Angeles who have under-utilized, available spots they can rent out to parkers.
Unlike competitors, MyLücke is focused on utilizing private parking spaces to help alleviate hourly, daily, weekly and monthly parking demands. Most competitors have partnered with commercial parking lots and target consumers who want to avoid one-time, event parking hassles. MyLücke is targeting people’s driveways and private businesses (even churches and retail spaces) where existing space exist and have the opportunity to be monetized! In fact, most businesses waste a lot of valuable parking spaces for customers on employee parking and this ultimately loses them valuable customers. MyLücke will help them to retain this value.

MyLücke also offers unique features, one of them being that parkers can extend their reservation through the app based/dependent on availability. MyLücke also has a 24/7 parking concierge and see customer support. The best part is that MyLücke Renters receive 100% of the rate set. (MyLücke adds and collects a surcharge- paid by Parkers- to the rate that Renters list their parking space for.) MyLücke is the perfect choice for Angelenos on the go!

Ultimate Jam Night; A Tribute To Lemmy of Motorhead

Hollywood, CA – Tuesday, August 23rd marked the powerful, 75th edition of The Ultimate Jam Night at the Whisky A-Go-Go with a touching, heavy-metal tribute to Ian Fraser Kilmister, better known as Lemmy of Motorhead. He passed away from cancer on January 28, 2015 but he has remained in the hearts of fans and friends alike. His everyman demeanor and pure raw honesty made him a rock legend with a flair for rebellion.

This special Ultimate Jam event was masterfully cultivated and magnificently performed by some of the metal worlds greatest artists. A true delight for classic heavy metal rock enthusiasts.

The evening began with DIRTY MACHINE, an American, New Metal Band with a powerful edge that combines abrasive lyrics, sonic experimentation, DJ spins and brash drumming.

The second opening band formed in 2009 when a record company was seeking a band that  was classic metal with a hint of Bon Scott of ACDC. Kraterface has made a name for itself locally and has had its music constantly heard in Television shows like  “Happy Endings” , “Raising Hope”, and “Reno 911” and feature films . Their music even appeared in Guitar Hero 2.

As the tribute jamming began, the house band brought the heat with Mr. Big’s Matt Starr on drums, Ben White from Magnetico on bass, the legendary Tracii Guns from LA Guns and Walter Ino from Survivor on guitar. Up front was the prodigious Vocal master Paulie Z doxologizing the grungy lyrics of the song Motorhead.

The stars continued to appear on the stage as more Motorhead classics were belted out by vocal phenoms such as Howie Simon, Sean Nichols and Patrick Stone.

Debbie Holiday brought us all on the Crazy Train with her vocal talents as we paid homage to Lemmy  and his collaboration of work with Ozzy Ozbourne. Crazy Train was a song that symbolizes the relationship between the two men… and it was brilliantly performed.

The night continued to rock and roll forward with so much metal it was like a fortress of music. Once again, The Ultimate Jam Night starring our favorite front man, Paulie Z was a huge raging success and a beautiful tribute to a fallen rock legend. Nowhere else on earth was rocking as hard as the Whisky A Go Go in West Hollywood California on Tuesday night.

NU MUSES INTERNATIONAL MODEL SEARCH

LOS ANGELES, Calif. – August 17, 2016 – Global model search announced!

Submissions now open through end of August online at www.NUmuses.com and at open castings in New York and Los Angeles.

image

From the founder of treats! Magazine, Steve Shaw, and photographer David Bellemere, comes a global model search to discover the first NU MUSES – 12 of the world’s most modern and inspiring beauties to be photographed for a luxurious and timeless photographic calendar. A millennial take on the classic Pirelli calendar of the 1970’s, NU MUSES will reestablish “the nude” as fine art to grace the walls of art galleries and collectors’ portfolios. The calendar will be launched at a VIP event during Art Basel Miami in December 2016 at an exclusive art gallery exhibition. Showcasing 24 stunning images, NU MUSES will be celebrated and gain worldwide exposure. In addition, the whole process will be shot for an hour & a half documentary to be shown in 2017 on one of the largest TV networks in the USA, and later distributed worldwide.

image

“We are launching NU MUSES at a time when things are highly censored, and restricted: we have pop culturecelebrities flashing body parts to get attention and music lyrics that are overly sexualized, but we need to bring back the female form as classic fine art that is highly celebrated verses gratuitous ”, explains Steve Shaw, founder of the project. Adds Christianne Brooks, Creative Director of the project, “This is about making something timeless through Intention vs. Attention. Intention by using a photographer who is a master of lighting, a master at working with talent and crafting these beautiful moments to capture them in. This is nothing new about nudity, yet we arepushing the boundaries and we are celebrating the uncensored beauty of the naked body.”

image

From landscapes and portraits in history, nudity was once recognized as the highest form of art, but over time has lost its point of view. We need to get back to showcasing timeless and classic nudity where women, as well as men, feel comfortable and inspired by these images of the female body. Women will want to be a part of this project because it’s a beautiful piece of art.

Starting today, models are invited to submit online or attend one of the open castings this month in either Los Angeles or New York. The search will be curated and finalized via live castings, social media voting and fashion industry judges.
